Preparation and Training
No matter what mode of transportation you decide to travel, be sure to carry a small first aid kit with you that is tailored specifically for your dog.
Health & Safety
If you do have an ID tag, check that the information listed is current. Your name and phone number should be listed as well as your dog’s name. It is also a good idea to have your dog microchipped and then register that chip with the chip company. By registering the microchip, you are putting your information into a database and if your dog is lost, a veterinarian or animal shelter can scan them for a microchip. They can then find out who registered the chip and contact you.

On A Cruise
There are only a few cruise lines that currently allow small pets onboard:
Cunard’s Queen Mary 2 allows dogs and cats only on certain transatlantic trips. However, your dog is not able to be in your cabin. They are relegated to an onboard kennel where specific crew members will care for your dog during the trip. This can be very pricey, close to what your own fare will be.
